Hi Mike

Do you want the columns hiding or just contents removing?

To add to Roy's solution, the excel sheet will always have the default number of columns 16,384 in recent versions, out to column XFD. Likewise the same applies to rows, down to row 1048576.

The surplus cannot be removed but can be hidden as Roy has done. Downside to having them hidden is that hiding effectively changes the default format of the column and thus Excel might interpret it as being used, increasing the file size.

If you want to prevent users scrolling out of the data then use the ScrollArea Property. This needs to be set each time the workbook is opened so use the Open Event

Option Explicit

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Main1.ScrollArea = Main1.Range("A1").CurrentRegion.Address
End Sub
